I have been flaring for three weeks and three days now. Up until last Friday I was pooing blood about
four times a day and had the occasional "accident." I saw my doc on Friday and he gave me prednisone and I thought I would for sure go into remission (prednisone always puts me in remission). Instead, quite the contrary happened.
My flares were waking me up all night on Friday, I probably went about
30 times from Friday night to Sunday afternoon. But these aren't just small bloody flares. These are all out, painful, gassy, uncontrollable, wimpering type flares (with tons of blood in them).
I called my GI today and am awaiting a response. I haven't eaten anything really the past two days and that hasn't helped b/c I have had five episodes already this morning!
When is it time to get admitted into the hospital? I have been on TPN before and don't want to go through it again, but would it be used in a case like this?
